The Prague School of Structural and Functional Linguistics
PHILIP LUELSDORFF (ed.) (University of Regensburg)
The importance of the Prague School for the rise of structuralism and for
integration of the theoretical linguistics of today can hardly be
overestimated. The volume brings together 13 papers showing the main
results of the research of the Prague School and of its continuation in
the domains of phonemics and written language, morphemics and word formation,
lexicon, syntax and semantics, text structures, stylistics and typology. The
authors all actively contributed to the domain they are treating here.

The aim of this volume is to witness how the activities of the Prague School
have continued to bring important new insights and discussions between the
1940s and the present time. Contributions are included which have escaped
attention on an international scale because they were published in Czech;
several papers have been written especially for this volume. the
contributions cover various domains: syntax, morphology, sociolinguistics,
graphemics, the language system, the lexicon, and contrastive linguistics.
